But the word Spring - in English - has many different meanings. Among it's many connotations it could be the season, it could be a mechanical spring, it could be a flow of water from the ground. The challenge of the dare was to include these three different ideas in a work using sounds from the Freesound Project.
Here is my entry: The Secret Place of Thunder
The title is drawn from Psalm 81:7.
"You called me in trouble and I rescued you,
I answered you from the secret place of thunder."

I used the following sounds and only these sounds from the Freesound Project:
The thunder, rain, and spring river sounds should be pretty obvious. I didn't mess around with them very much. The blackbird trill was put through a number of delay effects, as was the mysterious traveler bird noise. The the bass line and the melody were played with the jaw harp sound in a couple of different layers with multiple effects - some of which created another layer of bird-like tones - which fit in very well with the rest of the piece.
This song goes well with another of my recent bird songs - Anxious For Nothing
